Message Fort Scott Public Library through Facebook or email Miss Val at firstname.lastname@example.org before the start (10 am Tuesday) of storytime, and they will send you the link. The same link will be used for all future Zoom storytimes.
Zoom can be fully accessed on any pc with a camera and headset, smartphone, or tablet with online access. The full application will allow families to see and interact with one another, in addition to being a part of storytime. Storytimes will be recorded and posted afterwards for anyone who misses part or all of the meetings to view later. You will have the option of turning your video and audio on and off anytime during the meeting.
If you would like to do something special for this week’s theme, bring your real or stuffed dog to storytime, and/or a donut or donut-shaped snack (think Cheerios, bagels, mini bagels, etc.).
This week’s craft: Cereal Necklace OR Bird Feeder
Materials Needed: Round cereal with hole in the center such as fruit loops, toasted oats, etc. and a string or pipe cleaner. If you want to make the necklace, you may use any food with a hole in it instead of the cereal, if you don’t have any. Pretzels, cookies with holes in the middle, cored apple slices, gummy donut-shaped candy, etc. will all work. If you are using a pipe cleaner, you may use soft foods as well, such as raisins or mini marshmallows. For the bird feeder, cereal is recommended. Have the materials ready if you would like to join us in making the craft, or just watch Miss Val make the craft and do yours after storytime.
